Tuesday offers a solid seven-game NBA card. I’m taking a stance on one side now, and I also have a few other betting angles worth considering. Let’s look at some games on DraftKings Sportsbook.

    The Bulls have had their fair share of struggles on the road this season, while the Pacers have been better at home, but I think these two teams are catching up while moving in completely different directions.

    Since Tyrese Halliburton fell to the Knicks, the Pacers have lost seven straight games (including the game in which he was injured). They are just 1-6 ATS in those games, though that one coverage has been a home underdog. Five of those seven losses have come on the road, so being at home gives Indiana a boost. However, this is the first game back home after a very difficult trip to the west coast. These can still be tricky. With Halliburton already out, Andrew Nembhard becomes a bigger piece. He is listed as doubtful due to illness.

    Meanwhile, the Bulls are on a nice three-game winning streak. Chicago played one game against the Pistons internationally, taking a few days off before and after that game. I think the rest did them well at this time of year. The roster is essentially in perfect health, and their other two wins were impressive double-digit victories over the Warriors (as the six-point dog) and the Hawks (as the small favorites). I love that a healthy, well-rested Bulls team goes to Indy and enjoys a team that doesn’t know how to win without its best player.

    The Celtics are really stoned, and now off to the second night of a straight road. Boston lost in Orlando on Monday without Marcus Smart, Malcolm Brogdon and Robert Williams, after a hard-fought victory in Toronto on Saturday. That creates another tough situation Tuesday in Miami, and the injury report hasn’t improved much.

    It looks like Williams will return for Boston, but Smart and Brogdon remain out, and Jaylen Brown and Al Horford have since been ruled out. Both Tatum and Derrick White left the game due to issues on Monday but are expected to play in Miami.

    We actually cashed in a little prop Monday on Tatum’s 5.5+ assists for more money, and this time around I’m adding rebounds to the prop. Tatum is averaging 4.1 assists in games Smart has played, and is now averaging 5.9 in the seven games Smart has missed. In the two games he played with Smart and Brogdon both absent, he finished with totals of eight and seven assists.

    Tatum is averaging 8.4 boards on the season, leaving him in good stead here for an over. With those four key players out, I would expect Tatum to double down on the glass as well โ€“ he had nine or more boards in five straight games heading into Monday. At 13.5, he topped that rebounds/assists tally in seven of his last eight before dropping below on Monday.

    This is a simple one-on-one with a guy like questionable Nikola Jokic. The Joker is the most valuable spread player in the NBA, so after missing a few games, if he were to return, getting Denver into a pick’em-type game would be very appealing. The Pelicans are good at home, but will still be without Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. You’ll have to act fast, but if Jokic ends up being ruled out, I’ll try to grab some Denver fast.
